Liked: A localização não é ruim, mas é muito melhor ficar perto da estação central. O café é bom, bastante opções.

Disliked: Banheiros ruins, não há lugar para colocar suas coisas quando for tomar banho, e o espaço dos banheiros apertadíssimos. Não há elevador, e as escadas são muitos ruins, quem tem malas grandes, pobre deles.

Liked: Awesome hostel, really glad I stayed here! Its out by Vondel park so walking to and from the centre to it does get tiring, either use the trams or hire some bikes then it is no distance at all. The staff are really helpful, and the rooms were good.

Disliked: There are a LOT of stairs, if you are travelling with heavy bags, big rucksacks etc then it may be an effort to get up to your room, but it was part of staying in an old Amsterdam building.

11 August 2012 Maree would recommend this property

Liked: Great vibe, the bar is really cool, an excellent way to meet people.

Disliked: The stairs!!! The hostel has 5 levels, with no elevator! The stairs are super steep as well, so trying to lug your luggage and backpacks up all those stairs is a nightmare, especially if you are staying on the 4th level (like we were). Everytime you want to leave or you come back to the hostel, it's an effort to go up and down all those stairs all the time. Flying Pigs, please consider investing in an elevator!! There's also no airconditioners in the rooms, so if Amsterdam is experiencing a heatwave (as it was when we were there), the rooms can get unbearably stuffy and hot. But other than that, it's a great hostel to stay at!

Liked: For a large hostel, the flying pig is wonderful. There are always lots of people around to chat with. Free breakfast was a refreshing change from the rest of the hostels I stayed at in Europe. They have great recommendations for places to see, eat at, coffeeshops, etc. They' re located far from the city centre, but that's not a problem ecause leidesplein - a bustling street - is a short walk away. All in all, a great place in Amsterdam.

Disliked: At times, the place (room and common area) felt a bit cramped
